Jesuit Institute London
inspiration, resources and training for schools

The Jesuit Institute is a partnership of Jesuits and lay people in the UK who work to provide inspiration, resources and training for schools.

The Institute helps governors and school leaders, teachers and support staff, parents and pupils, with the aim of “improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good.”(St Ignatius Loyola, cf. Constitutions n.440)

The eleven Jesuit schools of the British Province work together better to understand, promote and live out the vision and spirit of St Ignatius Loyola in education.

The Jesuit Institute shares resources and good practice from around the world and creates and commissions new resources for schools.

The Jesuit Institute also works with other Christian and Catholic schools.
